    PSE 8 backup fails at 70% "error in writing files"

    brucebrannen

      This problem has existed since I purchased a replacement laptop and reinstalled PSE 8

      I have a little less than 8,000 photos and I back up to an External HD

      I have read the earlier extensive discussion on this topic which seemed inconclusive

      as to whether it could be resolved.

      The problem seems to exist in PSE 8

          The reason I began with Elements 10 years ago was I assumed that it would be able to grow with me and there would not be legacy issues.

          It appears at this point I have backed up my catelogue to about June when I moved to the new PC.  Any additions since then cannot be backed up.

          My searches over the past months have not ravealed a fix that works

          Is there a work around for this so that I can protect what has happened since June?

          At this point it appears the catelogue will have to be scrapped and rebuilt with in a more dependable program.....I can`t imagine the hours that

          is likely to take
